Hmm... Fluff's av is back to normal. What happened there, I wonder? ;)
I hope Ethan does well, but I have to admit, I am not confident he can stand up in what is potentially going to be a cut throat environment.
Me either, but when I saw him on The Early Show this morning he did look awful cute.
I ask nothing more of him than that.
You're speaking my Amber language, Fluffstress. :laugh
I agree. Ethan is definitely the cutest All-Star. I just hope he lasts long enough for us to enjoy looking at him!

I really liked Ethan, and I think he'll do very well. He kind of had a strategy similar to Sandra's, but he also won immunity challenges too. He's a force to be reckoned with.
You guys think I was annoying about Darrah you haven't seen anything yet. He is my hero. I'm a goalie and a coach, I have friends, other referees who know him, he is everything a role model can be. I agree that his weakness will be his integrety, but this group has people in it that are also that way. Once you cut Jeri, some of the most honest players to play the game. They could walk through as a solid group post alliance. He is plain and simple the best athlete there. I know people will disagree, but you don't know what it takes to be a professional goalie in the game. He is quicker than anyone most of us have ever met. He faced shots of near 80 mph or faster with less than 2 seconds to react. I referee players who have played division one college and play in an over 40 league with ex professional players.
Go Ethan and Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich
